Dirty Projectors announce new EP 'Super João'

Having already released two of the five EPs they are planning to unveil this year, Dirty Projectors have now announced their third collection of 2020, arriving early next month.

The new four-track release 'Super João' follows on from the previously shared EPs 'Flight Tower' and 'Windows Open', is said to be inspired by the work of João Gilberto, the Brazilian bossa nova pioneer who died last year, and is set to be released on the 4th September via Domino Recordings.

The band have also announced that they will be releasing a compilation collection of all five of their EPs, suitably titled '5EPs', which will be out on the 13th November.

Speaking about the new series, the band's Dave Longstreth said, “This cycle of EPs is about growth, transition, liminal space, shifting identity. Alan Ginsberg had a phrase ‘first thought, best thought’ to talk about a particular kind of writing - not automatic writing exactly, but quick, spontaneous, trusting. For me, these songs are about rediscovering that place, after the stereo ouroboros of the Ivo Shandor era (Dirty Projectors, Lamp Lit Prose). And I think for us - Felicia, Maia, Kristin, Mike and me - it’s about finding it for the first time: playing, writing, learning together as a new band.”

Check out the new video for the EP's opener 'Holy Mackerel' in the player and see the EP's full tracklisting below.
